Parties have changed a lot since I was a child. Life in the 70s was simpler, and so were the parties. But we loved them all the same. One day a year being all about you. What’s not to love about that!
The highlight in our home was of course the cake. My brother and I would spend the month leading up to our birthday pouring over every page of the Woman’s Weekly Birthday Cakes book. There was a magical quality to the appearance of our chosen cakes on our birthday morning.
Sadly, there is not one photo from our childhood birthday parties of these incredible creations. There are photos of us, but not our cakes. All the effort mum went to in creating our dream birthday cakes and we can’t find any photos. Shame. They really were masterpieces.
Todays birthday experiences are nothing short of enchanting. They alight the imaginations of children and parents alike. Is there anything more precious than seeing the look of wonder in our children’s eyes as they see bubbles floating around the size of them? Or have their home transformed into medieval times filled with knights, dragons & princesses? Keep the magic alive!
Follow these practical tips to help you capture the story of your child’s special day.
Once you have captured the day don’t let the images sit on your hard drive or a usb stick! Turn your photos into a photo book that tells the story of the day. It could be one last surprise gift. A gift that will last a lifetime…
